Pedicures are a relaxing and soothing treat for tired feet.
After long hours of standing, walking, or running on them a nice pedicure is very much worth it. Rather than driving to a shop and paying for one, do a simple yet rewarding one at home.
At Home Banana Pedicure Recipe.
This pedicure uses a banana instead of a massage oil, which will help whiten, remove impurities, and relax your feet . All you need is the following items; toenail clipper, cuticle pusher, nail file, lotion, cuticle oil, plastic container (large enough to fit feet), one banana, water, rose petals (or your favorite oil to infuse water), 2 small towels, scrub.
Start with clean dry feet.
Beging by filling up plastic container with warm water and add a few drops of your favorite oil or drop in a few rose petals.
Let your feet soak in the water before cutting down toenails to desired length. After cutting toenails, take the file and shape nail to a natural-looking round shape. Keep one foot in the water while your working on the other and vise versa.
Once you’ve trimmed and filed your toenails take the cuticle oil and apply it on one foot cuticles and let the other soak in the water. With the cuticle pusher gently push excess cuticle down and away from your nail. Switch the foot you worked on with the one that was soaking and repeat the procedure.
Let feet sit in water and relax for about a minute.
Take the banana and smash it up to make a thick paste. Grab the small towel, run hot water over it and fold it up into a square. Take one foot out of the container and apply the banana paste as you massage your foot in a circular motion. Work your way from your foot up towards your calf. Massage foot with banana paste for 3-4 minutes. Use a scrub to soften calluses or other dry areas on your foot.Take the warm towel and use it to remove banana paste from your foot and leg, do the same procedure on the other foot.
Place feet back in water and let sit for about a minute.
Take one foot out and use your favorite lotion to massage over foot and leg. Place foot over a warm towel and do the same on your other foot. Once done take the towel and dry off both feet.
This is the time to apply your favorite polish on your toes otherwise sit and relax! Hope you enjoyed this soothing banana pedicure.
